« Alternative to Sumo? Seiko Prospex SBCB015 for $366 Plus $5 Shipping |
| Some Guy Is Selling His Two Dozen Invictas on eBay While Listening to "Losing My Religion" »
Same eBay seller with 100 percent rating was selling Sumo for $537 last week. Now great sale price on a Seiko Tuna.

That seems to be around the going rate for this watch new, or anywhere in the $1000-1200 range. Used it usually goes for about $750-900.
I actually prefer the silver bezel SBBN017, but it is hard to find it on a bracelet. I believe there is, or was, one used on Ebay for $750ish.
If I were to drop a grand on a watch, it would either be the Tuna, the Orient Saturation Diver, or the Citizen BY0084-56E.

My favorite Citizen costs only 260 or so on eBay (it's been mentioned before), is gunmetal and hopefully is 45mm. Some descriptions say 43mm, which would play too small. But if it's really 45mm, here it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Citizen-Eco-Drive-Chronograph-Mens-Watch-CA0307-51H-/290854517210?pt=Wristwatches&hash=item43b847b9da

43mm can work for me and that one is relatively thick, so it might play larger than you think. But maybe not worth the risk.

No good photos of it on the internet. New stock? Reminds of the watch I saw guy at Watch City who by the way never called me back.

There are some decent pictures here:
You can't really tell the size, but at least you can see the chunkiness of the case in later pictures. I really like the bracelet.

Here's an auction at $85 ending in two days:
I bet it ends around $200. Here's another that starts at $225:
I seem to remember seeing that week or two ago, so maybe it is a re-listing and you should be able to get it for that price if the first doesn't work out.

One more. I purchased my Nighthawk from AuthenticWatchStore.com and it took two days to arrive from when I ordered it. They have this model for $252, which is as good as you're going to find it new from a store:
If I can't get the AT4007-54E used for a good price then I might order from them. Its $330, which is the best new price I've seen.

I just sent off for a Seiko Kinetic Pepsi Diver. I hope I'm not gonna regret that, as the whole Kinetic concept seems a little iffy to me. But it's blue! And red! And ridiculously waterproof for a guy whose chief water-vs-watch worry is dunking the silly thing while handwashing.
I have no right to wear a diver's watch, but I like the looks and the idea I wouldn't have to baby it.

Jonny, those deals are tempting but I need to sell some things. I'm overwhelmed by the size of my collection.
Bill, I have the gunmetal version of the kinetic, the same watch as the one you bought. It's a great watch. You should have no problems.
